New Water Conservation Regulations in Effect

On Tuesday, July 29th, an emergency regulation by the State to increase conservation practices for all Californians went into effect. The new conservation regulation targets outdoor urban water use. With this regulation, all Californians are expected to stop:

· washing down driveways and sidewalks;
· watering of outdoor landscapes that cause excess runoff;
· using a hose to wash a motor vehicle, unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle; and
· using potable water in a fountain or decorative water feature, unless the water is recirculated.
